Went From BMW to xD & Love It
By Brenda Richter on
2008 Scion xD 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
I traded in my 2003 BMW 325i for the xd car. At first I didn't even think much about looking at the Scion brand because it is marketed to younger people and I am a middle age mom. With my BMW I became concerned about gas mileage and upkeep costs. When it was time to trade the car in I had my mind set on a Prius but after driving the Prius I happened to look over and see an xD. The salesman was reluctant but I insisted on driving the vehicle and loved it. When I saw that it gets only about 11 mpg less than the Prius with a $10K price difference I was sold. My kids call it the Wii car which is funny. Avg 42 hwy & 35 city.
Definitely high MPG for non hybrid car, good handling, easy to park in tight spaces, price and low cost maintenance, the stereo system outshines by BMW by far.
Arm rest in front. Gauge on tach is a little hard to read.
